NOTRE DAME, Ind. – Brian Kelly’s press conference today after practice should have been called the, ‘let me make myself clear’ conference, as the fourth-year Fighting Irish skipper clarified a few comments he had made in previous sessions with the media. Kelly also took absolute sides in terms of depth chart inquires and what it would take for certain players to see the field.
After remarking earlier that the offense was as balanced as it’s been since he’s been at Notre Dame, Kelly made sure to point out they still had a marquee player at wide receiver.
“We have a go-to guy, T.J. Jones,” Kelly said. “If I led you to believe I don’t want Michael Floyd or Tyler Eifert, I don’t mean that. I like the balance in our offense, but I still think we have a dynamic playmaker in T.J. Jones. I just think we surround T.J. with much more balance. We didn’t surround Tyler or Michael with as much balance as T.J. is going to have this year.”
